Proposal: Special Moooove!!!

Enacted 9-0

Adminned at 27 Jan 2023 04:11:35 UTC

Add the following Buildings to the list in the rule “Buildings”:

* ‘’‘Amber Alchemical Apparatus’‘’ (3 Brick, 1 Jute) This Building has no effect if its owner is not in the Amber Faction. As a Harvest Bonus, the owner of this Building may convert all of one type of item in their Stockpile to the next link in the following chain: Brick>Stone>Wood>Jute>Rye>Brick.
* ‘’‘Silver Sieging Superstructure’‘’ (4 Wood, 1 Rye) This Building has no effect if its owner is not in the Silver Faction. As a Harvest Bonus, the owner of this Building may unset all of another Settler’s Domains, as long as that other Settler does not have a Fort.
* ‘’‘Purple Probability Permutator’‘’ (2 Jute, 1 Stone) This Building has no effect if its owner is not in the Purple Faction. As a Harvest Bonus, the owner of this Building may remove any single instance of a number from the Dice Deck.
* ‘’‘Cobalt Cooperation Castle’‘’ (2 Rye, 1 Stone) This Building has no effect if its owner is not in the Cobalt Faction. The owner of this Building may Trade as often as they would like and may skip the third bullet point in the Trade action.

Rewrite the subrule “King” of the rule “Visitors” to read:

When the Onlooker gets “King” as the result for Visitor, they should make a weighted random selection of a non-Unaffiliated Faction. The weighting of each Faction is determined by subtracting the number of Settlers in the Faction from the number of Settlers in the most popular Faction and adding 1. If the result of the random selection is anything but “Pirates”, the Onlooker should set the Visitor value to “X King” where X is replaced with this result. If the result is “Pirates”, the Onlooker should set the Visitor value to “Pirate Captain”.

This Proposal does two things. Firstly, it adds special Faction-specific Buildings to encourage people to select Factions. Secondly, it weights the arrival of a King to favour Factions with less Settlers in them, to encourage a relatively even distribution of Factions.

Pirates don’t get a special building, as they already have the advantage of halved Target Value.
